the nation's biggest source of greenhouse gas pollution which is our power plants. hurricane sandy wasn't caused by climate change but made worse by climate change. the surge here in new york was higher because the oceans are higher. the winds of the hurricane were speedier because the oceans are warmer. so we've got to attack power plants and reduce the carbon pollution from them, which not only causes climate change but also things like asthma and cancer. we also have to attack fossil fuel subsidies, in my view, subsidies for the fossil fuel industry now outweigh renewal subsidies by 75-1. we've got to level the playing field so clean energy has a chance to compete. in the meantime, we've also got to increase r&d for clean energy and preserve the limited subsidies that we do have such as the production tax credit for wind power. i also predict that 2013 will be the year when we begin to finally modernize our electric grid which is incredibly antiquated. we saw again in hurricane sandy that a few places in new york city like co-op city, were able to become islands of power and keep the
